Did anybody else not pay any attention to what happened over the weekend? I found myself uninterested in March Madness, couldn’t summon the energy required to watch the Sunday Showboats spout off on why RyanCare was a disaster for whoever they were opposed to, not in the mood for Donald J.Trump’s tweets and couldn’t even manage to get appropriately agitated about the black-hooded New World Order Obots who showed up at the Trump rally to pepper spray the attendees.
But this caught my attention, possibly because it inadvertently provides insight and commentary on everything else that has run amok in this country over the past few decades:
An Oregon judge who last year ruled that a transgender person can legally change their sex to "non-binary" has given the OK for a Portland resident to be genderless.
Multnomah County Judge Amy Holmes Hehn on March 10 granted a petition allowing Patrick Abbatiello to go from male to "agender" and switch to the single name Patch…
The judge told NBC in an email her decisions were supported by facts and the law. – OregonLive
We’ve become inured to Federal judges who have assumed they are the ultimate arbiters of Constitutional law, but County judges who assume they are God seems a bit of an overreach even for liberals.
And I fear that “genderless” further complicates Title IX school sports programs; will we now have to form separate “genderless” teams? At least transgenders can choose to play on the team that they “identify” with rather than the team their chromosomes “identify” with.
Biological males are joining women’s teams, smashing records and dominating in sports such as weightlifting, softball, cycling, track, wrestling, football, volleyball, dodgeball, handball, cricket, golf, basketball and mixed martial arts.
The movement for “equality” has apparently inspired transgender athletes to join teams of their preferred gender. And that often means biological males are competing against biological females on women’s teams. But in the world of sports, critics argue, equality between the sexes simply doesn’t exist. Physiologically speaking, there’s a gender gap between men and women that cannot be erased. - WND
It’s fairly obvious that transgenders will have the edge in women’s sports, given the physical strength advantage a person born with both an X and Y chromosome enjoys.
“If men can claim to be women and invade a sport that only women are allowed to compete in, then it’s a safe bet men will win,” writes the Federalist’s Brandon Morse. “All the accolades, rewards, and recognition will be taken from the women who rightfully deserve them and given to a man who essentially cheated by putting on makeup, injecting himself with hormones, and saying he’s a woman.”
Hey – be whoever you think you are, I don’t really give a crap; but don’t expect me to believe a man impersonating a woman is the same as as a woman born with two X chromosomes.
Allowing biological males to compete against women is not only unfair and dangerous to women, it’s worse than that, according to David Kupelian, WND managing editor and author of “The Snapping of the American Mind.”
“The insanity of this affects not just the transgendered individual and the women athletes thus victimized,” he said. “It also contributes to a sort of mass delusion infecting our whole society in which, thanks to the influence of the powerful LGBT movement, everybody now has to either affirm the absurd and crazy – that a man who is essentially a female impersonator can fairly compete against women – or they have to suffer abuse and persecution as bigots just for speaking the truth.” - WND
But back to “Patch” – which is now officially both a (non)gender lifeform and a pronoun:
The student has become the first American to gain legal designation as “genderless”, following a ruling by a Multnomah County judge.
The 27-year-old formerly known as Patrick Abbatiello, now legally designated agender, also got legal approval to change names, now going only by “Patch,” no surname. That name also serves as a pronoun, Patch explained to the local NBC affiliate this week.
“Even gender-neutral pronouns don’t feel as if they fit me,” Patch said. “I feel no identity or closeness with any pronouns I’ve come across. What describes me is my name.” – Heatstreet
So now it’s no longer adequate that you be allowed to officially be whatever established sex or race you “identify” with. If you identify with “none of the above” you can invent your own sex, race, pronoun, or non-carbon life form
…and the rest of us will just have to adapt or be guilty of discrimination.
I’ve invented a new product that I think will prove to be invaluable in the New World Order of Gender-Fluid Society. Let me know if you’re interested in becoming an early investor. I think the market will be very strong.
The original racist, non-eco version is also available in an economical 12 pack in case you need to change the gender of your entire team:
I think I’ll contact Patch, I’ll bet he could be a great marketing rep.
Patch's Facebook page says Patch studies creative writing and is co-coordinator of the Queer Resource Center at a branch campus of Portland Community College.
